The Lions wished one of their players happy birthday on the wrong day

In today's technological age with Facebook reminding you about your distant childhood friend's birthday, it's hard to forget those all-important days. Just don't tell that to the Detroit Lions.

On Sunday, the Lions sent out a Tweet wishing linebacker Kyle Van Noy a happy birthday.

A kind gesture, of course. There was just one problem: Van Noy's birthday is March 26, which the Lions clearly weren't aware of.

Van Noy followed his tweet alerting the team of its error with this very valid question.

The Lions apologized, wishing Van Noy a "Happy Unbirthday."
